gfid: Officer Wegner and Deputy Taylor Nehls discovered the male subject had driven his 4 wheel All Terrain Vehicle off of the ice and into open water....This is the first reported ice breakthrough in the county for the seasonI guess "open water" is an ice thickness of zero.A 32-year-old Beaver Dam man was taken to the hospital as a precaution and later cited with OWI first.Huh?
Mark Ratner: Doesn't alcohol save lives in cold weather? I thought that's why Saint Bernard rescue dogs always have that little barrel of whiskey around their necks.
OooShiny: Who has their bartender on speed-dial?!
elfbeater: I am from Wisconsin and when I was younger we were drinking and driving around on the lake in front of my house. The truck broke through and sunk. After a few thousand dollars(you have to hire divers at like $800 an hour) and a ruined car I thought the D.U.I and trip to jail would top it off. But the cop said that since its not a road they couldn't charge me. This guy should have stayed in his car.
lack of warmth: The rules for operating motorized vehicles has changed over the last few years, since at one time, no one got in trouble for drinking snowmobiling. Not that any new laws were passed, just how the cops, judges and lawyers have took to enforcing them. I don't know who can own lakes in WI, but in MI, all lakes are state property; even if one person owns all surrounding property.
Ken VeryBigLiar: They actually DID change the law now that DUI's on an ATV/Boat have some teeth and can be used by your auto insurer against you. I believe it started January 2012.
wesmon: Hey it's Wisconsin. The guy's mom and the 911 dispatcher were probably drinking at the bar anyway so the call to the bartender makes sense.
